Elizabeth Lawley, professor in the Interactive Games & Media department at RIT in Rochester, NY, where she also founded and serves as director for the Lab for Social Computing in the MAGIC (Media, Art, Games, Interaction, and Creativity) Center.

current teaching and research interests focus on games and tourism, social
computing technologies (including collaborative information creation and
retrieval), and social aspects of game design and play.
